One of the things that amuses me the most more from what I have seen in my grandfather's lasts few years, is that I used to feel like I was his favorite grandson, but then, after a couple of strokes he had, he started to forget people's faces and short term memory, as a result, from a couple of years ago, he doesn't recognize me at all.

So, it would be great to have a google glass application to review or study relatives pictures and other memories, or to have a reminder when you are in front of them.

This glasses could also be a great assistan for mobility issues, like finding back the way home, or as a panic alert if there is no activity from the person in a long while.

Searching on the web for this kind of applications for google glass, there are lots and fine examples like the ones listed in: http://www.zdnet.com/old-age-is-the-killer-app-for-google-glass-7000014602/
